About East Buffalo
The East Side of Buffalo New York is one of the most historic and true regional sections of the city. There are many distinct and unique things that can be found here. One of the first is the Broadway Market. This is one of the oldest and longest standing old style markets anywhere in the United States. It used to be that markets like this existed in cities around the country, but now they are few and far between. Regional butchers and vendors come here to sell their wares to the local populace. The most popular time to take a trip down to the Broadway Market is right before Easter where one can find the traditional butter lambs. Shopping here has become a tradition that families have done for generations.
Another great stop over by the East Side is Charlie the Butcher. Charlie is famous for serving up one of Buffalo's traditional food: the Beef on Weck. Sliced roast beef on a kummelweck roll with horseradish and au ju, this dish has become a staple of many Buffalonian's diets. Stop by Charlie's to see it done the best in the city. There are many other things to stop by and see in this quaint, regional district, you just have to spend some time and look.
